What is Homeopathy?
Homoeopathy is science. It has been
discovered in 1790 by a German
physician called Dr Samuel Hahnemann.
The word Homoeopathy is derived from
two Greek words :HOMOIOS = Like / Similar
PATHOS = Suffering
Homeopathy and Allopathy
Homeopathy = Similia Similibus Curentur
Law of similars = Like cures like.
Allopathy = Contraria Contraiis
Law of opposites = cure with opposites

What is the difference between Homeopathy and
Homeopathy: follows the physics theory
in remedy preparation.
Allopathy: follows the chemical Theory.
In Homeopathy: People are different, and each
individual needs a special, unique remedy.
Allopathy: medicines are generic , one type to treat
one disease.
Homeopathy stimulates the body system to get rid of
the disease (any disease).
Allopathy: suppress the disease by
concealing the symptoms.
Homeopathy tests remedies on healthy
people. It is important in homeopathy
to get to know the subjective and
objective symptoms.
Allopathy: medicines are tested on
animals first.
Homeopathy: Natural substances are used.
Dilution and Succussion are the main principles
in preparing Homeopathic remedies.
Allopathy: Chemically Extracted active
ingredients from the substance (poison) and
using them individually or in combination.
Sometimes the active ingredients are
synthetically made, for its low cost.
Proving = testing the poison on human beings.
•Preparation for proving:
•One of the main condition is that:
•The individual should be reasonably healthy
(physically, emotionally and mentally).
•He/she should be reasonably intelligent.
•He/she should lead a healthy life style.
•He/she should have enough knowledge about
Materia Medica
It is a detailed document about each remedy.
Symptoms are registered and categorized into
paragraphs, each paragraph deals with an organ
from three dimensions (when, where, how and
what make these symptoms better or worse)as
well as generalities. The symptoms are collected
using the same language the provers used when
they describe the subjective and objective
symptoms. There are so many Materia Medicas
(Books and Computerized Programmes.
Repertories are encyclopedia like books, where
remedies are collected and organized, from top
to toe. Physical, emotional and mental
symptoms are collected from the Materia
Medicas in the provers’ language.
Concentration on the strange and peculiar
symptoms, time and place of the pain , sleep
and dreams etc. There are many repertories ,
most of them are computerized.
It is not logical to test the Homeopathic
remedies using the same tools that test
Pharmaceutical drugs, for each
discipline follows different theories.
Kirlian photography is used by some
homeopaths to prove the differences in
potencies and remedies.
